Offering Help and Hope for Pre-marital
The mentor relationship is where an experienced married couple comes alongside a couple preparing for marriage. The mentor couple shares tools and insights learned from their own marriage as well as training received through our mentoring program.
Our Purpose: Strengthen Relationships
Today in our society more time is spent in preparation for the wedding than in preparing for marriage. One in every two marriages ends in divorce. The effect upon the family and society is devastating.
Marriage Mentors is committed to preparing pre-marital couples for a lifetime commitment in a relationship that builds and nourishes each partner and provides a haven for their children.
Our Foundation: The Word of God
Marriage Mentors is based on Biblical truth. Our mentoring program began in 1997 as a response to accelerating divorce rates and the desire for couples to succeed in their marriages.
Biblical precepts bring to light four major emphases of Marriage Mentors:
- Understanding the Marriage Covenant
- How to communicate
- How to resolve conflict
- How to cherish (honor) one another
Inventories are utilized to bring to light potential areas of conflict and communication problems.
Our Mentors: Regular Married People--Experienced and Trained
Each Mentor Couple has been married a minimum of ten years and has gone through Mentor Training.
There is no perfect marriage. Mentor Couples have learned through the years to work through many challenges. Experienced mentors offer their couple encouragement. They help the couple learn to work together through challenges and to build a strong marriage.
Time and Cost: An Investment with the Greatest Returns
Time involved for pre-marital mentoring is designed to take place over a four month period. Afterwards, mentors remain available to their couples for encouragement and support.
Married couples needing mentoring receive help and encouragement on a regular basis as determined by the mentor couple.
The only financial investment on the part of the couple being mentored is for the cost of processing the inventory ($35.00) and the cost of any workbooks used during mentoring.
The most important investment on the part of the couple being mentored is to spend the time needed in homework assignments and working through the issues with each other.
